Update and Live Presentation

As you can imagine we are all eager to get into the mountains. Climbing season is just around the corner but right now it is important to stay home. We will be resuming club activities as soon it is deemed appropriate. In the meantime we have organized a live you tube presentation put on by a local physiotherapist to help you with your climbing game. Have a look at our trip page for details.
